Who We Are
The Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness (TAEH) is a community-based collective impact initiative that recognizes the critical importance of working in a new way towards our common vision of zero chronic and episodic homelessness in Toronto.
We have brought together agencies, organizations and individuals, most of whom represent Toronto’s shelters, multi-service organizations, affordable and supportive housing. Our Community Partners and Individual Supporters work with people who are marginalized by poverty; many of whom are currently homeless.
We are driven by a collective mission to end chronic and episodic homelessness.
We are community based, focused on what we can achieve through our collective impact. We recognize the critical importance of working with all levels of government, particularly the City of Toronto, to achieve the goal of ending homelessness.
We work to engage individuals and organizations that represent a broad segment of society and include people with lived experience of homelessness (PWLE), service delivery agencies, research and policy organizations, consumer driven organizations, businesses, associations and advocacy groups and community organizations.
From the very beginning, those active with the TAEH have articulated and demonstrated a commitment to an inclusive and welcoming working and decision-making environment. We have also understood our need for collective accountability so that we can all share and learn from our success and increase our collective impact.
People with lived experience of homelessness as an essential part of the work to end homelessness, and strive to learn from people with lived experience on a continuous basis.
We recognize the critical importance of working with all levels of government, particularly the City of Toronto, to achieve the goal of ending homelessness.
